I was very excited to receive the GRAND BAZAAR collection to work on for this month. As soon as I saw it, I just knew I had the perfect photos to scrap using it! I think this collection is good for many different types of projects, from love photos, to adventures and childhood memories. It also very suitable for Male layouts and all sorts of greetings cards. This collection has many colours which can be used all together in a project or separated to focus on just 2 or 3 colours. I found that my photos suited the more selective type of colours. For example, I have focused on the blue and yellow tones for this layout. I have then further focused on the doors and tiles to compliment my photo and to express my memory of Portugal as you will find many intricate tiles and beautiful doors during an adventure there.
To create this layout I have followed the steps below:
Cut KAISERCARD BLUEBERRY WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 12 x12 inch. Adhere prepared CERAMIC TILES to the middle of the cardstock, leaving the bottom right hand corner free to be folded back. Fold back corner and adhere the tip. Slot one of the 5 tile sets under the folded corner and adhere.
I used some papers from the 8×8 pad to mat behind my photo.Next, time for some fussy cutting! I cut lots of flowers and leaves out and also some butterflies and items from the Adventure Beckons sheet .
I coloured over some of the flowers and butterflies with some Gold Mist.
I used three of the little postcards from the Ephemera Pack to tuck in and around the layout.
Next, I took two strips of the Futuristic Fantasy paper, rolled some of the background up on the top left and bottom right of the layout then added the fantasy strips behind.
